How to Hide Mutual Friends On Facebook Android and iOS

Facebook has, over time, introduced a number of privacy features, the most important of which is the friend-list privacy set up to give users complete control over their profiles. The Facebook user profile page has a friend list option, located at the bottom left of the cover photo. By default, this is set to show all your friends to everyone who sees your profile.

The largest social networking platforms offer a plethora of security options under the privacy setting to help users stay safe. This means you can hide your friend's list from the general public, from certain friends, or from everyone
